Sedan Middle Taillight

Hey so i wanna get the blacked out ICMP led taillights for my cashmere gold sedan (its the hardest colour car to do mods on) and i was wondering if they have a led taillight for the middle brake light? and if anyone can give me a opinion if the blacked out on gold will look good please let me know

You can change your bulbs for LED but you need to add a bleeder resistor or your cruise won't work. I don't understand why you would want to make your high brake light less visible. Kinda defeats the purpose don't it.

Like Coby said, this is like the most important light on a car. I smoked my tail light and they aren't really visible when they light on at day because they are matte. I would never apply any tint on this one. Anyway, it's your choice! I did tail light and side marker and leaved this one normal, here's a pic, it's not that bad looking!

yea it looks clean, and i know what coby meant, I'm just a stickler for stuff matching and stuff, idk we will see, i might go to the junkyard and grab a middle brake light and try that out ,this way i have an extra if it doesn't work
